Vicky Evans is an educator and mentor of 20 years standing with a passion for projects which use physical literacy and creativity to enhance performance and wellbeing.
Her experiences range across the broad spectrum of primary and secondary education through to innovative mentorship of fellow educators which has always been underpinned by a lifelong involvement in physical education, dance, drama, and the creative arts.
Through offering Arts Awards qualifications in Monmouthshire and the surrounding areas, Vicky is bringing an innovative, bespoke, creative arts offer to the region for young people.
Vicky is passionate about supporting young people to realise their artistic interests and dreams. 'To achieve an Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form, participate in arts activities, experience arts events and become inspired by artists and by leading others'.* It is the job of the Arts Advisor to nurture and provide support for all involved in these qualifications. Her own experience of leading ground breaking and unique creative initiatives in Wales mean she has a wide range of connections and experiences to draw upon.
Trinity College Arts Award's framework is highly flexible and encourages students to explore the cultural and diverse arts world on their doorstep and grow our artistic community further. Leadership elements in the higher levels offers significant project management challenges, which Vicky is ideally suited to support and guide.
If you interested to find out more about how Arts Award can offer an additional or alternative qualification, there is more information about all levels on the website and how Vicky can make these ideas a reality for you. All projects are unique and will have the learner's interests and needs at the heart of the project.

Gold Arts Award
"I cannot begin to explain what joy studying this way has brought to my daughter. She is happy and positive anyway but the light in her face and smile since beginning her Gold Arts Award is immeasurable.
The beauty of this way of study is that it is pupil led within the guidelines of the syllabus. How could this not be successful when what she is studying comes from within? I have nothing but praise for Arts Award and Vicky as a mentor. The life skills my daughter has learnt since studying this way in only two months is phenomenal: she has prepared and taken an art class at a local primary school with 15 children and acquired new technical ICT skills.
The reflective self developments activities that Vicky brings are life changing: helping her grow and develop as a young person.
It is an absolute privilege to watch Mackenzie develop this way and worth every single penny."
